This study reports on the prescence and extent of self-evaluation among 60 acute & 60 low suicide-risk subjects & whether self-evaluation decreases from 60 nonsuicidal subjects to acute suicide attempters. Results show that the acute suicidal scored lower than nonsuicidal persons on self-evaluation. Low self-evaluation might be an important factor in the adoption of self-destruction.
